do we -- i know texas opted out of it. how could we opt out of its? and they were there. >> let me give you of the background. first of all, it does not emanate from anything the senate has done. common gore is a program developed by the governors' association. so if you don't want them coming to be a part of a commodity have to do is change it. it's not anything that goes through me. in other words, it's a state up to then opt out deal. that is a state-run a shoot they you all need to deal with. i don't think the goals behind a common core are necessarily bad. i think probably the implementation is very dangerous, but the point is improving the educational standards of our children, you know, the best way to do that is put parents, teachers, administrators back in charge.
